Thoughts on recent movies

Bank Job

Saw this one last Friday. I'd say it was O.K. The fact it was based on a true story is what saved it. I'd say a 6 or 7 out of ten. There were just some really dumb parts to it. There's also some nudity, which sometimes that went to extremes to hide with odd camera angles, and other times that went to the extreme to show. Kinda weird.

Southland Tales

I highly recommend this,  it just came out on DVD and is really good. It'd kind of confusing, but is funny (although it's not a comedy) and is very interesting. It's kind of a science fiction film, kind of a drama, kind of an action. The Partiort Act has been expanded after there were nuclear attacks on the U.S. and the government controls almost everything. It center's around a group of rebels, the Neo-Marxists, who are attempting to rig an election. It also gets into 4th dimension and rifts in the space-time continuum. Best lines:

"Scientists are predicting the future will be far more futuristic than originally predicted."

"Then the 4th dimension will collapse... you stupid bitch."
